decisive action when lives are at risk. unlike mitt romney and paul ryan, who said that they would bloc grant fema funding to states. states are having fiscal problems and that responsibility would fall to them. it's so unfortunate that we have people that take these ex prem p -- extreme positions just to score political points. when you're in harm's way you don't want a private company that's trying to save money. you want a government that will do what is required to save lives and that's not the policy that mitt romney or his twin paul ryan have advanced while they have been in office. they have done just the opposite unfortunately. >> mayor reed, i'm sorry to press you on this, but isn't that the point of the way these gentlemen have been speaking? this is their patently clear philosophy, and yet when it collides with reality on a day like this, it's not something that the people of america like at all. the idea that we're going to make the responsibility for emergency relief not just in the hands of the states but preferably according to mr. romney in the hands of private businesse
self. what we have seen is a paul ryan look alike throwing grandma, a wheelchair bound grandma off the cliff. we have seen mitt romney made to look demonic wanting americans out of work, throwing them out of their jobs. we have seen children being exploited. megyn: there is something called the future childrens project that put out this strange ad with the kids singing -- they think there will be oil in the water and so on and so forth if barack obama is not reelected. we'll show them the video. >> sick people are going to die and now there is the video we have seen the actress from the show "girls" encouraging single young women to lose their political virginity to barack obama. we have a history of these kiens of ads coming from the left. what it tells you -- this is the bigger point. team obama and those who support him have nothing left. they can't run on obama's economic record because it's a disaster and now they can't run on the foreign policy record because it many shot through with lies and it's in collapse. the only thing they have left, their default position is to run t
candidates think are important, both mitt romney and paul ryan going to pennsylvania. that state. does that mean you're in trouble there in pennsylvania? >> no. i think it means the romney/ryan campaign is desperate to try to figure out how to win this race outside of the states that they've been contesting for 15 months. i think that's all pennsylvania is for the romney/ryan campaign. john mccain spent the last weekend in 2008 in pennsylvania in a desperate attempt to do this as well. >> the president he is making three stops in wisconsin, though. that is a state, however, that in maps that the president's campaign manager has shown us months ago was in the safe category for the president. why does the president need to spend so much time in wisconsin in these final days? >> what the president wants to do in these last stops, as you heard him on the video there, is present the case one last time in front of people in wisconsin. we want to show people we're moving this country forward and moving this economy forward. >> that's a safe state, why is the president spending his vital time
court. stansville, wisconsin, that is paul ryan's hometown just about 20 minutes north of beloit. you're looking at live pictures where the vice president is going to be speaking shortly. biden's visit comes just today after the president's trip to green bay, and here's why. take a look at the latest cnn poll of polls for wisconsin. of likely voters president obama leads with 51%. mitt romney has 44%. this is an average of several polls. now, one man, he was so desperate for gas in new york, he reportedly pulled a gun in a waiting -- waiting in the line there. you can see. we'll show you how desperate this situation has become. i don't spend money on gasoline. i am probably going to the gas station about once a month. last time i was at a gas station was about...i would say... two months ago. i very rarely put gas in my chevy volt. i go to the gas station such a small amount that i forget how to put gas in my car. [ male announcer ] and it's not just these owners giving the volt high praise. volt received the j.d. power and associates appeal award two years in a row. ♪ >>> new york
to the east coast to help now. they're coming from all over. >> well, mitt romney and paul ryan have canceled all of their campaign events tomorrow and at their last event in ohio romney asked people to help if they can. >> i want to mention that our hearts and prayers are with all the people in the storm's path. sandy is another devastating hurricane by all accounts and a lot of people are going to be facing some real tough times as a result of sandy's fury and so if you have the capacity to make a donation to american red cross, you can go online and do that. if there are other ways you can help, please take advantage of them because there will be a lot of people looking for help and the people of ohio have big heart, so we're expecting you to follow through and help out. >> well, we know early voting was canceled yesterday in maryland and power outages will certainly cause more problems for early voting but what about an actual delay of election day. it could happen. let's go to pete williams, nbc justice correspondent, but, pete, really? >> it could but it probably won't and, you know, to
, it means one foot laterally in terms of what we have to deal with. you said this to me before. what paul ryan did with fema, the 43% cut is a disastrous public policy. will this now be left on the cutting room floor and will congress understand that fema is essential. >> the case has been made. this is a national disaster. it is crossing 17 different states and 17 different states are facing life-threatening situations and having a federal coordinator, fema is coordinating all of the federal response efforts not only in new york but all across the 17 states. a case is certainly being made. we're calling fema every other day. >> eliot: if key didn't learn it in katrina, we are learning it now. the romney-ryan budget cuts fema 43%. that's simply outrageous. bad, horrendous public policy. >> and those who advocate that say it can be handled by the private sector. >> eliot: they don't flow what they're talking about. congresswoman carolyn maloney my congresswoman, many thanks for joining me tonight. >> great to see you. >> eliot: other local officials from the storms will join us, and new me
at least one more time. paul ryan is here today. that says it all. both campaigns know that this is a very competitive state to the end. the suburbs are the key areas. make this point before i throw it back to you, 1.3 million people have already voted in the state of colorado. i talked to is the secretary of state today, he says that's probably about half of the electorate and says you can still vote until tomorrow. more than 50% of the votes will be cast before election day and they're already starting to count them. we were watching that process in downtown denver. >> are we getting any indication on how the independent voters are moving right now? >> reporter: it's a critical question because this state is roughly evenly divided between democrats, republicans, independents or unaffiliated voters. if you look at our poll, our poll shows a dead heat. and 49% of the independents go for president obama and joe biden, 47% go for governor romney and paul ryan. moderate voters who tend to live in the suburbs, many of them independents, 60% for the president to 38% for governor romney. if you'
and 1 points over the summer and fall, but in a quinnipiac poll, he was only up by four. paul and ryan along with john avlon in toledo, ohio. romney has outspent the president in pennsylvania since he became the nominee. i saw this. i was stunned when our producer looked at these numbers. of the 15 million total, just in this week alone. is this money well spent? >> i think it makes a lot of sense for this reason. now, it's true that ohio might be a tighter state, but the question is, r it's the marginal benefit. mitt romney spent a ton of time in ohio and if spending an additional few hours as we get closer to the election could make a big difference in pennsylvania given he has spent far less time in that state, that's what you've got to think about. real additional hours in ohio make that much of a difference there, where as in pennsylvania, it could be a difference in defeat. it's 20 electoral votes versus 20 in ohio. this could really scramble the map. >> i'm going to look at the map in a second, but first, paul, i want to go to you. mitt romney has put 2 million ads worth in penn
for granted. they've learned from the past and as you know this is the home state of paul ryan. precious time to be expending on a traditional blue state at the end. the president is cross crossing the nation going is from ohio to virginia to florida to colorado back and forth across the battleground states in the final hours. and part of the message is countering the message you hear from romney. governor romney says he will bring big change, the president arguing he is the only one who can carry that banner. listen to this. >> you may not agree with every decision i've made. sometimes you may have been frustrated by the pace of change. but, you know where i stand. you know what i believe. you know i mean what i say and i say what i mean. >> and wolf, part of his argument there as well as he's an honest person that voters can trust. something interesting i'll tell you, you might be able to tell over my shoulder, a comparatively small crowd here. they've been mixing it up. the one in wisconsin 20,000 people, according to law enforcement officials there. this one significantly smaller. where e
his plans. the republican presidential nominee and running mate paul ryan will hold storm relief events instead. the campaign is not saying what those events will involve. yesterday romney asked supporters at some of his rallies to donate to the red cross. many area residents will not be able to vote early because of sandy. governor martin o'malley ordered all early voting centers to be closed for a second day. he ordered early voting extended through december 2nd to make up for the missed days. >>> 6:18 now. air travel both nationally and internationally remains crippled by sandy's impact. all flights going out of reagan and dulles remain cancelled until further notice. leaving the few passengers who are there to wait out the airports, which do remain open with limited staffing. right now there aren't any planes on the ground there either. they were moved to other airports in other cities before the storm. >>> it could be difficult getting around the area with downed trees and flooded roads. tony tull is live now where sandy left an impressive trail of destruction. >> reporter:
. the republican presidential nominee will stump tomorrow in virginia. paul ryan will return to wisconsin. mitt romney cancelled many campaign events out of respect for sandy's victims. he helped collect supplies from his supporters yesterday in ohio. the district is making up for lost days by extending early voting hours. you can vote until 9:00 p.m. in maryland, you'll have two extra days to vote early. the state's early voting centers will be open friday. they will also open early, two hours early at 8:00 a.m. >>> 5:35 now. prince george's county government will reopen today. getting to government offices in upper marlboro will not be easy. two of the main roads in upper marlboro are still closed due to standing water. news 4's tony tull is live with more. tony, good morning. >> reporter: eun, good morning. right now water street is closed. the good news is i just talked to the crews here, and they say water street probably will be open by the time they come around. some of the crew members walking down there. i just spoke to him and said, they probably are going to have it cleaned up and ha
part of the state. this is an area where paul ryan knows we develop. he is from janesville nearby. 10 lech coral votes in play in wisconsin can republicans take the state as they argue? >> i think it is absolutely in play. look at recent history in wisconsin, go back two now, where a few thousand votes separated george w. bush and 2004 where john kerry and george w. bush were very close. and then you look at some of the built-in advantages republicans have in the state today, whether paul ryan being on the ticket. whether scott walker having won his recall election on june 5th and expanded his margin from 2010. reince priebus being chairman of the republican national committee. republicans are pretty fired up in wisconsin these days. bill: you mentioned 2004, here are the results, 50-49 kerry over bush. it was less than that. it was .35% of the total vote in the state. >> right. bill: so your point is well-taken. go back to 2008. i want to pop down to ohio because later tonight in the southwestern corner of the state, hamilton county, city of cincinnati, westchester, ohio, is the town
. at a rally in florida yesterday, paul ryan urged supporters to lend a hand to all the storm victims. >> let's send our prayers and our thoughts to the people in the northeast. floridians, you are no stranger to big storms. you know better than anyone on the need for communities to come together and for neighbors to help one another. >> first lady michelle obama at a campaign event in iowa city says the president is putting his political schedule on hold because sandy is his priority. >>> and west virginiaens are expected to get hammered by heavy and wet snow. sandy's not sparing anyone. as much as three feet of it is expected in higher elevations and a blizzard warning is in effect for ten counties there. the snow threatens to bring down power lines and people are being advised as they are here to stay indoors, soledad. >> what a mess. what a mess. zoraida, thank you for the update. we take a short break. within we come back on the other side, we tell you what's happening with that massive house fire -- i should say fire of two dozen homes in breezy point in queens. we know it's related to
romney is about to kick off a disaster relief event in ohio. he and paul ryan have scrapped official campaign stops in the wake of the storm. the governor asking people in iowa last night to help and remember those affected up and down the eastern seaboard. >> american red cross is, of course, accepting donations and if you have a little extra you can send off to the american red cross, join us in doing that and make sure we do our very best to help those that are being impacted by the storm. we love our fellow americans. wish them well. >> great advice at this time of need. joining me now is john spiteser, communications director for the republican national committee. it's good to see you this morning and mitt romney is not going have any official stops today. one thing i do want to play for everybody, the comment played a few minutes ago by new jersey governor chris christie about the election next week. we are down to the pivotal days left. >> this administration at the moment could give a damn less about election day. >> all right. if you give a damn -- i know chris christie said
the usual target states and spread to deeper blue states that chicago never anticipated defending. paul ryan was in his home state of wisconsin to encourage relief efforts of campaign victory offices. the native son popularity helped him surge in 2.3 points of the president in real clear politics average of recent wisconsin polls. thursday he will visit virginia where the top ally is dealing with the clean-up. >> we are issuing a letter today to all the voting registrar office around the state. asking them to stay open for up to eight additional hours to make up for the time. that a citizen may not have had to vote absentee. over the last two days. >> i don't think the damage has been massive. not in virginia it appears. especially northern virginia. not necessarily in new hampshire. so, we're not looking at swing states, sustaining the damage. >> devastation hasn't completely disrupted the campaign. advertisements continue and endorsements continue. today, romney picked up support of former chrysler cio and hal sperling, saying he is the right man to help detroit and fix auto industry. for
missing here? >> i have the benefit of meeting one on one with mitt romney and paul ryan and probing what are their thoughts with regard to taxes and defense. you're talking about the things being thrown out, but when you look at a 20% rate reduction and when you look at what rate are now, that will take the top rate to 28%. we lose 1.1 trillion a year in revenue through the deductions and exemptions and credits and exclusions. over ten years that's probably 15 trillion, when you count inflation. so all you have to do is is eliminate about a third to 40% of the deductions, exemptions and credits and exclusions, and you can be revenue neutral. with regard to defense, we're spending 4.6% of gdp on defense. he's committed to spend 4. 4 is less hanthan 4.6. my personal view is we shouldn't commit to 4 or more than 3 and it should be facts and circumstances and see what happens. >> the economists that look at this say he has promised that he will not hit the middle class at all, only affect upper income earners. if you eliminate all of the deductions only for upper income earners, it leaves yo
. governor romney, together with paul ryan has put forward an economic recompry plan consisting of five central elements that will in four years create 12 million jobs. as you know, there are many people who take exception to that. he goes on to list those five elements. i'll do them in a nutshell, achieve north american energy independence, retrain the workforce for jobs now, make trade work for america, restore fiscal sanity, we'll champion small business. can this, in fact, in four years, you believe, decree aeight 12 million jobs? and i'll warn you, ali velshi is going to say no possible way. go ahead. >> well, we don't have to guess. we can look when ronald reagan had a recession, which had double digit inflation, 20% interest rate, in many ways much more devastating, higher unemployment, much more devastating than the one that obama has, when you went out three years plus, the same length of time that obama's had since we've been in technical recovery, the economy grew 20%. obama has grown 7%. a third the strength of reagan's. job creation much higher under reagan. what did reagan

running mate paul ryan will be doing a similar event in wisconsin. romney was briefed by fema homeland security, the weather service. he encouraged crowds in iowa to come together to say this storm is a time for people to put politics aside. >> the damage will probably be significant and, of course, a lot of people will be out of power for a long time. hopefully your thoughts and prayers will join with mine and people across the country as you think about those folks in harm's way. >> reporter: earlier in the day in northern ohio romney struck a somber tone. >> a lot of people are enduring some very difficult times. our hearts and our prayers go to them as we think about how tough it's going to be there. >> reporter: he also asked supporters to help those along the east coast with donations to organizations like the red cross. but the storm is taking romney off the trail at a critical time after a rise in poll numbers and surging momentum. he canceled rallies in swing states like ohio iowa wisconsin, new jersey and virginia states where a bipartisan message could

the president. that paper endorse ed barack oba in 2008. and we're getting late word that mitt romney and paul ryan will kick off a four-day tour starting on friday. they'll be joined by their wimps and some 100 other surrogates will be standing out around the country, condoleezza rice, bobby jindal and senator marco rubio of florida. >> talk about a final push. >> we guarantee it for barack obama, too, we just don't have the details yet. and tuesday is election night. finally you will want to join cnn's live coverage of election night in america beginning at 6:00 p.m. eastern time. it's upon us. next tuesday night. >> in the dark with candles. hopefully not. back to our starting point this morning. states from north carolina are still dealing with power outages from superstorm sandy. cory booker has been out on the streets of newark, new jersey, helping residents there. also taking requests. he joins us by phone now. what do you think the biggest problem is in your state? is it power outages? >> well, definitely the power outages. we're starting to get back to many residents but we still have
with romney. this is a surprise to many people watching. a lot of people including me thought the paul ryan pick would open up an opportunity to demagog with the obama campaign and peel off older voters. it has not. abortion hasn't worked very well as an issue for the obama campaign. you saw it highlighted during the democratic convention and the idea was it would peel off college educated female voters and increase the gender back. the gender gap has shrunk by half in the past month, that is pretty good news for the romney campaign. martha: let's take a look at florida which is the last on the list we have in front of us -- have, excuse me. it says 49-47 quinnipiac. when you talk to some strategists they have already been fairly confident about virginia, about north carolina and about florida for mitt romney supporters. i guess the question is at this point how much stock do we put in these polls and how much do we put in sort of the feeling on the ground and the feeling people are getting in different states? >> the striking thing about this election is how little anyone knows. typically
of one of the worst moments of the campaign, which we saw here on "morning joe" when paul ryan went to a soup kitchen in ohio after the patrons were gone and put on a crispy white apron and appeared to wash dishes that looked clean. later said they were dirty. mitt romney has to look presidential at times when it would be tempting to do a photo op. to remind you that both campaigns have a real feeling of trepidation at the moment. you pointed out numbers that looked good for romney. but that north carolina poll that you showed, romney tied right before the election, and politico, the carl rove group, up at eight states including north carolina, not a good sign, and fascinatingly, they are not advertising wisconsin, karl rove thinks it's not going to happen for mitt romney considerably narrowing his options. >> what do you make, mike, of what we were talking about earlier? pennsylvania and minnesota attracting money from both campaigns and valuable time from president clinton? >> yeah, it's insurance by them, but i think you made a great point. the bill clinton in minnesota, an aston
and paul ryan. and we need them right now. right now i'm much more concerned about preventing any other loss of life, getting people to safe places. then we'll worry about the election. the election will take care of itself. i've spoke to the president three times yesterday. he's been incredibly supportive and helpful to our state. not once did he bring up the election. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea. nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i've got a job to do here in new jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics. and i could care less about any of that stuff. i have a job to do. i have 2.4 million people out of power. i've got devastation on the shore. i've got floods in the northern part of my state. if you think right now i give a darn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> yeah. he's a strong, strong guy. only an hour ago after his tour with the president he's got a great working relationship with the president. they've been working incredibly closely ov
